Information about ALPS Mountaineering Summit Series Air Pads - Set of 2
Closeouts. Great for use with double-wide sleeping bags, ALPS Mountaineering's Summit Series double air pads are self-inflating and can be used separately or attached for a sleeping space large enough for two people.

I am very impressed with how comfortable these are to sleep on. They look so thin, it's hard to imagine they'd do much to cushion my tired bones from the ground- but they're great! Even on the hardwood floor of a lean-to, I slept practically as well as at home.

Best night sleep my husband and I have ever had in the woods! They hook together, therefore, don't slide around all night. They are nice and firm keeping us cozy and warm. The one downfall is they are a bit bulky for multi-day backpacking, however, at the end of a long day of hiking, very worth it if you have extra room on the outside of your pack.

These are really nice sleeping pads. They self inflate most of the way, but you'll want to blow them up more to get them to the maximum thickness for comfort. I have to admit I was skeptical that a 3" pad would be as good at supporting my 270 lb body as my older queen size inflatable mattress, but it actually works better. My much lighter wife had nothing but praise after some nights sleeping on these while camping. They are really well made, and I hope they will last a long time. We're planning a lot more hike in style camping trips and these should do well in that endeavor. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that they are nearly impossible to get the air out and rolled back up enough to fit in their sacks. My wife and I each work on one at a time to get as much out as possible, this is not a one person job.

These are wonderful, we've tried many air pads and these are the best ones. Love STP prices too. I was surprised how quickly they inflated with the two valves. I'm very happy with these. We had other Summit series air pads that we've had for years so I hope these lasts as long.
I am guessing 6=7''. I was able to roll it up and fit it easily into the bag provided in one try. With a second roll to eliminate more air I might have made them tighter. As stated these are too bulky and heavy for serious back packing.

The tightest we can roll it is to an 8" diameter, this is with my wife helping. We do them together to get them tighter. I did on my own and could barely fit it back into it's sack, so, maybe near 12" diameter. I'm not sure and I'm not going to try. Hope this helps.

I measured about 8.5 inches in diameter, a little bulky but worth it. These are the best air pads, you can't beat the price.

I could get this measured between about 10-12 inches.

To inflate the mat you simply open the valves at the top of the air pad and the air begins to get sucked into the pad. When it is inflated you just close the valves. These are made from polyurethane open cell foam. Alps has a video explaining how the pads work that you can view here if you would like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t67Pprcp0Jg
